If you were paying attention earlier this month, your world might have seemed just a little bit odd.
Meteorologists delivered the weather while dressed like superheroes in drag. Crowds spelled out words that could be seen from aerial photos. People went hang gliding in costumes. Flash mobs creeped up everywhere – at malls, post offices and schools.
Even Justin Bieber got into the act, inexplicably Tweeting to William Shatner that he loves the TV show Supernatural.

All of our 2002 dreams are coming true!
Kelly Clarkson has admitted that she and fellow American Idol finalist Justin Guarini used to date.
In a segment of "Plead the Fifth" on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, the "Heartbeat" singer was asked to confirm whether she and Guarini really had a fling, as he claimed in his one-man show Lovesick.

There was a time when American Idol runner-up Justin Guarini was on top of the world.
The 34-year-old, who came in second to Kelly Clarkson on the show's first season in 2002, remembers the days when "I couldn't walk the street without being stopped a hundred times" by fans.
But on his blog Wednesday (which had been removed but is back up), the father of two admitted that he now spends "days skipping meals in order to make sure I have enough. To make sure my children and my wife have enough."

Until just last month, American Idol's Justin Guarini had planned to walk down the aisle next summer. But, in the end, the singer – who was the runner-up to Kelly Clarkson on Idol's inaugural season – decided he couldn't wait any longer to marry Reina Capodici, whom he first met in junior high school, where Capodici's mother was his English teacher.
"We just wanted to be married so badly," says Guarini, who reconnected with his new bride in December 2007. "I thought to myself, 'It's time.' Seeing how much we both had grown, how well we operated together, and how in love we are, it just made absolute sense."
Saturday afternoon's wedding – which took place in the garden of a private estate in Guarini's hometown of Doylestown, Penn. – may have been pulled together quickly, but the couple still found time to make each detail of the 25-minute ceremony personal.

Surrounded by family and close friends, Justin Guarini married Reina Capodici at a private estate in his hometown of Doylestown, Penn., early Saturday evening, Guarini's rep Jeff Ballard confirms to PEOPLE.
Guarini, 30, the runner-up to Kelly Clarkson in the first season of American Idol, and his new bride, 27, attended high school together but only started dating after reconnecting in the past few years.
The intimate wedding was presided over by a female minister from the Universalist Church and included vows the couple wrote themselves. Guarini's stepdaughter Lola, 4, spoke during the ceremony. Music by Radiohead, Paramore and Peter Gabriel was performed by the Vitamin String Quartet.

Justin Guarini is known for his mane of wild, curly locks – but these days the singer's smile is even bigger than his hair. And for good reason: He announced Thursday that he's getting married over the weekend.
"He's doing really well, he's excited," says Guarini's pal and publicist Jeff Ballard. "This is the happiest I've ever seen him. He's smiling from ear to ear. I don't know what's bigger – his teeth or his hair."
On Saturday, Guarini, 30, will wed Reina Capodici, 27, of Doylestown, Penn., who went to high school with the runner-up on the first season of American Idol.
